Autumn calm

So many shades of green to enjoy

September may be drawing to a close, but the afternoon temperature is still about 25°C! This is a wonderful time of year to take a stroll or bike ride along the towpath. There are other walkers and a few cyclists enjoying the remaining sunny weekends before the frosts and grey days of November arrive.
